Amiibo figures have been a big part of every new Nintendo game for a long while now. Scanning different amiibos on your Switch grants various rewards in the games you are playing. The same is true for Zelda Tears of the Kingdom which features a huge list of possible rewards you can unlock through amiibo figures.
This guide will help you understand how to scan amiibos in Tears of the Kingdom and all the features and rewards that are unlocked through amiibos in Zelda TotK.
How to scan amiibo figurines in Zelda TotK
The method of unlocking the amiibo scan functionality is pretty straightforward. Like all the other abilities Link has, Amiibo ability is also unlocked on the Great Sky Island. As you wake up at the start of the game, go to Temple of Time and that should unlock the amiibo scan feature for you.
Anytime during the gameplay, you can pause the game and open the Options Menu. From there open the Amiibo option and then enable Amiibo functionality. Once it is enabled, you will see a new Amiibo Icon on your Ability Wheel.
Selecting the ability makes a circle on the ground. This circle will sign toward the place where you will receive the reward that is obtained by scanning the Amiibo.
Now simply place any amiibo figurine on your Nintendo Switch while you are in-game and its corresponding reward should get unlocked in Tears of the Kingdom.
Zelda Tears of the Kingdom amiibo rewards and unlocks
Around twenty-six Amiibo figurines work with Zelda TotK although the number of items you can unlock are over 50. That is because some amiibos can unlock multiple items, which one you get is random so you have to scan multiple times.
- Only some of the amiibo offer unique rewards or unlocks after you scan them.
- The remaining ones are non-Zelda amiibo that only grant generic rewards such as currency, food, etc.
With the daily amiibo scan limit, it can take you up to several days to unlock all the figurines. But worry not, we have made a list of all the known Amiibo along with the rewards you may get by scanning them in Zelda: TotK. This way you can get a sneak peek of the upcoming content before patiently playing through the game.

As mentioned before, there is an unlock limit so if you get something you don’t need, you will have to wait till the next day to scan again. You can however bypass this by creating a save before scanning an amiibo. If you don’t get the desired item, just reload the save and try again.
